The 2.10 Property Tenure Policy seeks to achieve Council's objective of maximising the use of Council-owned or controlled property while maximising the benefit of these assets to the wider community.

A waiting list of organisations that are not-for-profit incorporated bodies searching for tenure is maintained by the Property Management Branch. The waiting list is used to record property enquiries that are assessed against property as it becomes available for tenure.

The waiting list records:

  • name of the organisation
  • contact details (any two of postal, phone, email)
  • the constitution or a statement of the organisation's purpose
  • the most recent AGM minutes and audited financial statements
  • minimum requirements of the organisation such as location, size, improvements/facilities, timeframe and accessibility
  • the wants of the organisation (i.e. the desirable features of the property)
  • willingness to share facilities or to make the property available for wider community use.

Community organisations wanting to register their organisation on the waiting list should supply the above information to Council, marked 'Attention Senior Property Officer'.

Historically, the demand for property has been greater than the supply of suitable properties. Therefore, inclusion on the waiting list cannot be taken as a guarantee of any future tenure. Organisations are encouraged to simultaneously explore other options at all times.
